I've been looking around for a gaming computer that will actually run vidya like The Secret World or Skyrim, except I have little to no idea what I'm doing here. I'm not computer-smart when it comes to building them, and I don't have the time to intensively research it either.
In short, I'm a noob, and would like some input on the specs of this config so far. It totals to $1,404:

why are you getting both a 7750 and 640? if you're thinking of using that 640 as a dedicated PhysX card, i'd rather grab a single powerful card over those.

no to the OCing charge. a mild OC to 4ghz is something you can do yourself. simply take your time with it. skip the performance tuning as well.

grab a 2x4gb DDR3-1600 instead if that's going to save you some.

skip the HDD cooling.

personally, for $1.4K, including monitor, it's a bad deal.
